Dunes Golf and Beach Club ranked number 50 and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club ranked number 73. "Congratulations to the Dunes Club and Caledonia for being ranked among America's 100 Greatest Public Courses," Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday President, Bill Golden said.
The Dunes Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr, and opened in 1948. The course has hosted professional golf events, including the U.S. Women's Open, six Senior PGA Tour Championships, and the PGA Professional National Championship.
A Mike Strantz design, Caledonia's layout was crafted on over 100 acres of property. The course has an antebellum style clubhouse that requires a forced carry over water.
"Myrtle Beach has more outstanding golf courses than any destination in the country, and having two layouts ranked among America's top 100 public courses is further affirmation of that quality," Golden said. Golf Digest chose the golf courses based on shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, and conditioning.
